The Indian Institute of Administration in association with the Punjab government will organise a training programme on ‘Social Conflicts Analysis and Resolution Approaches’ for senior and mid-level civil servants of Central and state government aimed at improving the day-to-day functioning, an official spokesman said today.

The five day long training programme would start on February 1, 2016 at Indian Institute of Public Administration, New Delhi, he said.

He said that all state government departments have been directed to send the duly filled nomination forms by January 8, 2016.

The spokesman said that it has been often observed that civil servants while taking policy decisions and further course of implementing these decisions are confronted with situations where for various reasons the actions suffer a conflict.

He said that inaction may also have similar or worst effect and may impede the process of social justice.

He said that this multi-dimensional analysis of conflict situations and resolution strategies would create bridges and facilitate appropriate decision making and implementation efforts.

The workshop is aimed at enabling the participants to evolve a comprehensive understanding of social conflicts and approaches to conflict resolution with social justice, he said.

The spokesman added that experience sharing and analysis of actual conflict situations and resolution strategies by the participants would be encouraged.
